Free Printable Stationery Set: Lyrical Tree Style

Free Printable Tree Stationary Set Here is the stationery set that features the art print I put up earlier.  This set includes the following designs:




2 Note Papers
2 Note Cards
2 Envelopes
9 Gift Tags
3 Note Pad Sheets (To-Do list style)

As for the look and style… It’s kind of a swirly, curly, lyrical tree doodle in a cranberry red.  When you download the zip file you’ll find that the tree was titled “Tree of Contemplation.”  Sounds all deep right? That was the result of me not being able to figure out what to title the files since I have other tree related files on my computer.  Get it?  HA!  I’m hilarious.

Anyways, if you enjoy it—tell me about it. 

What a neglectful blogger! artCan you believe the nerve of some people?  They go a whole MONTH without posting a blog entry and then expect every one to be all “ooohhh” and “ahhhh” the next time they post.  Well, if I was you dear reader, I wouldn’t stand for it! 
You’ve probably figured out that I’m talking about myself, right?  I’m sorry!  Life got the best of me again.  I have LOTS of stuff I need to post and I’m going to try to get it up this week.  Don’t give up on my yet folks!
But, I do have a present.  This art print is going to be the basis for some nice new stationery.  I hope you like it!

Free Printable Seed Packets

My dad always said that I grew great winter gardens.  “Winter gardens” of course, being ideas that are wonderfully conceived but are not, or can not be, acted upon. He was right of course– I spend an inordinately large amount of my time dreaming and planning but quickly loose interest once its time to actually get the project under way.

I was *thinking* of growing a garden this year.  I’ve been *thinking* about doing it all winter long.  Of course, just as the weather starts to turn hospitable, I’ve lost all interest. 

That’s ok, though.

There are lots of seed packet printables online.   A person could spend all day clicking through pages.  So, here’s my round up of the ones I liked best. 

I’m going to start with this blank template for creating your own seed packets.  If you have a closet full of scrapbooking supplies (like me) this is a good template for putting those papers to task.

I don’t know what kind of wicked cool stuff is lurking over at the Wild Life Gardeners forum because my membership hasn’t been approved yet, but it must be awesome if it’s so well guarded.


Here’s some seed packets I made up to share.

I used the Modish template to create these and various digi-scrap kits (attributed on the PDFs.)  Enjoy.


Free Printable Sizes Book


I was researching resources for subtest 4 of the Bracken Concepts Scale and I couldn’t find a printable that teaches children about sizes. Well, that’s not entirely true. I could find a lot of stuff for big, little, short, and tall–but the concept test asks about shallow and deep and I couldn’t find anything that addressed that. There weren’t many things that mentioned wide and thin either. So, I made something. It’s just a little book, nothing too fancy. It’s a powerpoint so if you need a PDF let me know. You should be able to print it pretty easy, but if you have issues please let me know and I’ll work something out. It takes a little bit to load on Google, so far warning. I printed it with 2 slides per page, cut apart the sides leaving the left hand margin in place and stapled it together. Sorry about the pitiful webcam photo, I’m feeling too lazy for the real camera today.

Teach children about sizes.

Have an Un-Happy Valentine’s Day

valentine stationery Valentine’s Day carries with it a lot of unhealthy expectations.
First of which is that on that one day a year you should be terribly, fiercely, deeply, in love with somebody. 
Second, that you express your all encompassing love for your selected other in the form of gifts, candy, and poetry.
Let’s be straight about it.  Most Valentine’s Day celebrations in a swirl of disappointment, bitterness, and shame.  So why not be up front about the impending doom that is Hallmark’s most sacred holiday?
Meet Jilted and Scorned from the Sullen Collection.  These two are unlucky in love and are here to share their stories of failed relationships with any who will listen.
This stationery set includes:
4 Stationery Papers
4 Note Cards
3 To Do Lists
9 Gift Tags
2 Envelopes
2 Envelope Liners
4 Wrappers
and is available for free download for the next two weeks.  After which I will transfer it to my new Etsy store for purchase.

Free Printable for teaching Adjectives

printable adjectives for teaching As promised earlier in the week here is a copy of the printable I created to teach adjectives to my son.  This isn’t a grammar lesson.  The purpose of this printable is to:

1. Expose the child to a variety of adjectives.

2. Categorize objects by adjective.

3. Establish that objects can have more than one adjective to describe them.

Ways to use this adjectives printable:

Print the entire file.  Fold all the pages in half and staple them together to create a book.  Read the book with the child saving the review section for last.

Print the pages and cut apart the adjectives.  Expose the child to a new adjective each day.  Discuss the adjectives and look for things that can be described by that adjective.  Hang the adjective pages up or add them to a folder for review.

Download this printable adjectives PDF.

or you can contact me to request the PDF in other formats (I have it in Power Point and Publisher and with all the images right side up.)  The pictures are better in other formats, of course.
